I heard from 3 people regarding my Watson Application. They all had both suggestions for readings and further questions I might want to explore, as well as names of people for me to contact more closely related to my field of interest. I am very pleased and excited by the response I recieved thusfar.
The Ask Me Anything Chat was a wonderful opportunity, and I hope to be able to extend it further. I did not interact with any graduates, but when I look at the landscape of public education in this country I know that we need people, people like Oberlin grads to help catalyze change in schools. I'd love to talk to Oberlin grads about finding ways to teach in high need schools. Please email me if you want to talk further email@example.com
I had no formal companions on my drive beyond a smattering of Obie-founded podcasts, and Anna recommended so many good Ithaca restaurants! I didn't make it Gorgers for the fried eggplant bahn mi but it's top of my list for next time. I would recommend for any Ithaca-bound Obies to check out Carriage House for brunch and Purity for yummilious ice cream sundaes.
